On 12th February 2014 dataCore released Update 3 for SSY-V 9.0 PSP4. This update comes quite fast after Update 2 where a critical bug was addressed that should have been installed asap. So waiting until Update 3 officially gets released was not an option for Update 2.
Update 3 also addresses some major bugs but not that critical as Update 2 as the three bugs resolved by Update 3 only appear in quite rare configurations or can be avoided by implementing the change mentioned.
The addressed bug in more detail:
- Fixes an issue allowing customers with Shared pools to upgrade for the critical fix available in SANsymphony-V 9.0.4 Update2 (those already on 184.108.40.206 are not affected)
- Prevents a crash when resizing down a vDisk and then carrying out a reclaim of space (those on 220.127.116.11 or earlier should not resize to avoid this issue)
- Protects against an unhealthy side of a vDisk being used during a SVmotion from an ESX Host (those on 18.104.22.168 or earlier should disable VAAI before SVmotion)
Update 3 should be installed immediatley if you are probably affected by one of the bugs mentioned above or as soon as possible for all other installations.
